Karen Stintz joins arts firm

Former councillor named executive director of ArtsBuild Ontario

Karen Stintz is leaping from one stage to another.

The former Eglinton-Lawrence councillor and mayoral candidate announced yesterday she was joining ArtsBuild Ontario as an executive director.

ArtsBuild Ontario helps cities build, manage and finance venues for various artistic mediums.

In a press release, Stintz said she was very excited to be joining the company and contributing to the arts community.

“When we talk about support for the arts, the importance of local arts facilities doesn’t often make it into the conversation,” she said. “But they’re a tremendously important part of bringing the arts into communities across Ontario.”
